This is just a simple end grain cutting board I made a few days ago. After trying to wrangle the belt sander into submission and failing, I now want a stationary drum sander before making more of these (or to get really good with low angle planes). It’s sadly cupped and oddly proportioned in thickness, but the end result still looks nice.

The board is only about 7” by 8” and made entirely from my scrap bin. Walnut, honduras mahogany, white oak, and poplar. Finished with howard’s butcher block conditioner. The pictures show it sitting on my old horrible plastic cutting board for comparison.

I agree, the drum sander needs to be my next addition.

Nice job.

Great patterns… only critique… I would put the brand in a corner.. so that both sides of the board can be used…

Good point, degoose. I’ll do that on the next board. I want to try making one of your tumbling block boards someday, too.
